about

The Soul System EP is the newest project from Detroit's Nametag, produced entirely by Black Bethoven. The concept of the "Soul System" is, "One producer, One emcee, One concept...One EP." It came about originally with Black Bethoven preparing to release an instrumental CD to follow up 2009's "Da Ear Hustle" but with an idea inspired by Dub MD, the emcee and producer decided to team up and create a music piece that provides food for thought you wouldn't find in your local grocery aisle. With tracks like "Time" which is the EP's leading single, Nametag and Black Bethoven prove that soul music has a permanent spot in the hip hop genre.

Track Name: Can We Try ft. Journey
(Hook)

Baby can we try, and stop the fuss and fight, no one but you and I, can we try, baby can we try, and stand the test of time, I'll be right by your side

(1st verse)

So we had another argument, you swearin' up and down I started it, as if you ain't have no part in it still both feelin' cupid's shot as a marksman, here we both go placin' the blame, when it's no need to fuss no need for games...I mean real talk, I'm just sayin, all that bickerin' it wrecks my brain, and us disagreein' it can get a bit lame, tellin' each other who needs to change...and you might be right, but it don't call for us both puttin' up a fight, or hollerin' about nothin' much all night but through it all good feelings remain in spite, the sayin' couldn't be more true it takes two to make a thing go right, and you the one I wanna take flight wit and fly so I'm askin...

(Hook) (Repeat 2x)

(2nd verse)

Yet again anotha argument, I'm swearin up and down you started it, as if I ain't have no part in it, still both feelin' cupid's shot as a marksman, here we both go placin' the blame, when it's no need to fuss no need for games...communicatin' by silent treatment, 'cause we don't speak if, we both beefin'...or sayin' negative things and don't mean 'em, like-I'm packin' my bags and I'm leavin', but remain at home the same evenin', and then we end up cool by the weekend, 'cause it was all good just a week ago, lets depend on time for you and me to grow, much closer, I know it seems like a roller coaster of emotion but one thing you must know is I'm askin'...

(Hook) (Repeat 2x)

(Bridge)

Call up the radio station and make this song a special dedication < (repeat 1x more), call up the station, and make this song a special dedication < (repeat 1x more)

(Hook) (Repeat 4x)
